Abstract

We prove that the matter field subalgebra of the observable algebra for QED on a finite lattice is isomorphic to the enveloping algebra of the Lie algebra 𝓈𝓁(2N, ℂ), factorized by a certain ideal. Using this result, we give a new proof of the decomposition of the physical Hilbert space into charge superselection sectors.
